Fallen Climber Tahquitz Rock

September 8, 2007
Tahquitz Rock

At about 4 p.m., RMRU was called out to rescue a climber who had fallen on Tahquitz Rock, near Idyllwild. Having spent most of the day practicing technical rescue skills on our new climbing tower, few of us were keen to respond. Nevertheless, members mobilized to assist the injured climber.

As members were arriving at Humber Park and preparing to deploy into the field, fellow climbers succeeed in carrying out the injured climber and our services were not needed. Kudos to the resourceful climbers who succeeded in "self-rescuing" the injured party.
